We have visited this zoo just south of Palm Desert CA several times and decided to go again this year as it was a cool day. Zoo has basically tow parts to it - 1) Africa and 2) North America. Animals typical for the regions are housed in each section. Park (zoo) is relatively small which is good for HOT days and it can get very hot so go early and take lots of water. You can pay an extra $6 per person and hop on and off small trolly cars to get around the park but we chose to walk. Besides animals there are several botanical gardens at the zoo. Great place for kids and adults.
